As a child I loved this time of year. Leaves were everywhere and in so many different colors and hues. Fall is literally a playground for me as a photographer. And while I was visiting a friend of mine I spied her Elm tree and just had to take some pictures. Of course I snagged her and her girls as well.
One of the things I love about location photography is the fact that nine times out of ten it is in their own backyard. And the look on their faces when I show them their proofs it just priceless. Most of the time they are so busy they just dont see the possibilities that surround them. And capturing that gives them an added bonus to their photos. The knowledge of knowing the magic of their portrait was in or around their home is priceless.
So enjoy the beauty that surrounds us all. Take a moment to slow down the hustle and bustle that has become our lives and look at what you have missed. See all the wonders and capture them for yourself. Or better yet.....give me a call and lets see what we can capture together.
The Eagle River Band has some new members on the Road Crew. And boy are they starting out early in life!
It was a gorgeous day when the "roadies" and I headed out to one of my absolute favorite photography locations for their session. "The boys" are the two young sons of the Lead member of the Eagle River Band I shot back in July. Their mother had found these matching outfits that said "I am with the Band". So what else could we do than grab a few guitars and capture the pure "perfection" of this moment.
As most parents will tell you trying to get a toddler to sit still is near impossible. So having a fast camera is essential because those lil turkeys can beat feet FAST!
We tried to set up a few shots that Mom REALLY wanted. Then I just played follow the leader as I do on most toddler sessions. The results are just priceless. Enjoy this Sneak Peek at the Crawford Boys.
